Silicon Valley *Update*

Regular readers may remember one of the set homework questions that the students get in year eight. It's about silicon valley and its links to electronics.

I inherited this homework booklet and at first wasn't that bothered about it. As time has gone on though it's become a remarkable indicator of just how awful students are at sifting through information on the internet and using it to answer some simple questions.

Look back in this blog for some other glorious answers here and here.. I thought I had seen it all but they still manage to surprise me with their brilliant/appalling attempts.

Q: "Why is it called Silicon Valley?"

A: "Because it really is a very silly valley"
